HARARE City assistant coach Mark Mathe has shown confidence in the team’s new signings ahead of the new season.
Mathe said the Sunshine Boys needed balance and they have worked on the grey areas from the previous season.
“We needed a balance so after the 2018 season we looked at the squad and pointed out the grey areas that needed polishing.
“Hence, bringing in those new players we are trying to address those grey areas and hope for the best,” Mathe said.
Harare City have brought in as Marshal Machazane from Dynamos, Walter Mukunga from Ngezi Platinum Stars and Collins Mujuru who was with Aces Academy.
Tatenda Tavengwa is also another addition to the team after losing Pritchard Mpelele to Manica Diamonds and Malvin Gaki to Chicken Inn.
Ryan Harrison decided to hang his boots while former captain Tendai Samanja has taken a coaching role in the side’s developmental squad.
Midfielder Moses Muchenje concurred with his coach praising the impact of new signings in pre-season.
“I am happy with the preparations we are doing right now. I think we are ready and capable to compete as a team with the new guys on board.
“Last season I think I did well and am hoping to do even better this season because I know with hard work I can make it on the calendar as the best midfielder.
“We are currently working on our mistakes from last year, rectifying them and turn those draws into wins,” he said.
